false friendship , like ivy , decays and ruins the walls it embraces but true friendship gives new life and animation to the object it supports .
Today I would like to draw your attention to an important life lesson we all at some time been through . we all have friends and are friends to each other , we either there in time of need or need someone at our rescue when we are down . However , my deepest fear is trusting the ones we may think how our backs in situations , yet are far from that
fake friends …often we are mistaken by the meaning of friendship . You ought to know by now that not everyone is your friend. just because we hang around with the same people everyday and have a couple laughs , it doesn’t make them our true friends , it doesnt mean that they wont hurt you . Often people pretend well , we hear the saying ‘jealousy sometimes doesnt live far’ . its important to know your circle , who you can trust and rely on . It is said that “an honest enemy is better than a fake friend . how true is this ? when in trying situations , always pay attention to what people do rather than what they say . it is sad , but true that at the end of the day , real situations expose fake friends .
fake people are always near you at you brightest yet disappear at your darkest hour …sounds familiar ? if so , its time to change your circle of friends .
to be a good friend you have to always find ways to help and be around rather than looking for an excuse . its sad how over the years friends can lose contact , yet if a bond is strong it does withhold the test of time and distance . true friends always find a way back .
a true friend pushes you towards greater possibilities for your future , whilst a fake one will chain you to the mistakes of your past leaving you in loss of confidence and self-doubt …so choose wisely . a person who is always cultivating your friendship with ulterior motives is someone who is not going to be there for you in time of distress .
we all at some point experienced the value of friendship , likewise have we experienced people , especially the ones closest to us , stop taking to us and surely started talking about us behind our backs . As Wiz Khalifa said , and i quote “best friends have 11 letters , but so does backstabber ” unquote .
it is time you acknowledge that you rather have a few real friends than a thousand back=bitting , pretend well , so-called friends . in this world there are people who are real and genuine , some are good , some are fakes and some are really good at being fake .
as we get older we tend to look for quantity and not quality , so lets change that . look for someone who is going to stick around , someone willing to tell you the most ugliest truth to your face rather than behind your back. look for a friend that is in both your brightest and darkest hour , who always has your back in all types of situations because they love you and not just doing it to brag about it . Trust soemone not to believe in rumors heard , rather believe in who you are .
In conclusion , i have a bit of advice . be a friend you expect in return , be considerate and loyal . don’t wear a mask nor be two-faced . let your friendship grow through honesty and love . DONT BE UNAPPRECIATIVE OF A TRUE GEM , JUST DISCARD ALL THE FAKE ONES .
